Why Real Estate
“I love the creativity of designing, creating, and providing housing for our residents. I love the challenge of working with our investors and financial partners to structure the financial means to deliver.”
“Helping to manage the organization through the global financial crisis in 2008-2009.”
Work hard, have fun, and surround yourself with smart people with whom you enjoy spending time.
“Always try to do the ‘right thing’ even if in the short run it seems more expensive. Being a good partner, fulfilling your commitments, and operating with transparency will generate long-term rewards.”
“Housing is something that our customers need, as opposed to want. The continued growth of jobs and household formations in Dallas and the other markets in which we operate have me excited about the continued opportunity to create apartment homes for those who need them and deliver value for those who invest in them.”
“For better or for worse, I am a lifelong Cubs fan.”
